All in the Day of a HS'er!
So.... as you all know, we've added Jode, another furry friend, to our family. He came to us as an intact male, and as of Monday, has been made an 'it'! Yes y'all, right there on our kitchen table with a throw-away table cloth! I happen to have a friend who has a license to perform these types of operations. So, all other academic courses were postponed for the day, while we all helped out! It was quite cool. Charlie and Kellar were so amazed by it. They each got to hold a leg tied off with horse hay rope, as did Hannah and I. Grace was right in there too! Nothing bothers her in the least! Jode's no worse for the wear and can be found in his usual spots curled up napping... in the chair next to where I sit at the 'puter, inside the barn amongst the hay, or found on my lap purring contentedly. So, I guess all is forgiven (at least until he finds out this spring that he doesn't work that way anymore!) Somehow in high school I missed out on the frog dissection! But hey... we're more hi-tech nowadays!
